Marie Diamond (01:45):
Thank you so much, Amanda. It's so exciting to be here with all your fans, listeners, and viewers.
Yes. Well, I'd love to start for those who are tuning in and maybe they don't even know what Feng shui is, if you wouldn't mind sharing a little bit about what that means and what kind of connected you to this path.
Thank you for asking. Yeah. Feng Shui is something people I'm sure have heard of, but they don't always know what it means. And it is really a Chinese energy system that has been around for thousands of years. And I would say we already are connected, perhaps more popular with some other energy systems that are used in the Chinese tradition like acupuncture, Tai chi or Qigong. Well, you have to think this is all about the flow of energy, the qi as we call that. And feng shui is really, I would say a sister system, but for beyond your body, literally for the home that is a bigger body around you. And so finding out how the flow is of your home and how to use what we call the Feng and the Shui means the wind and the water vibration. What we also have in our body, we literally have water in our body and we have air.
So it's the breath that we need and we know if we're without air that we feel suffocated. Well, sometimes in our home we feel the same way. We feel like we come in a house or we come in a part of our home, we feel like suffocated, we feel like there's not enough energy there. And then the first thing I think women always do is cleaning up or they want to redecorate things or they want to open up the windows and let the sunshine come in. So in a way we do that instinctively when there's not enough air and good vibration in our space. But feng shui is really the energy system that has found over the thousands of years, the principles behind it, the formulas how to really by doing certain things and certain placements and certain colors to really always enhance your space around you.
And because of that will enhance the space within you. And so for me, that has been a journey since I'm 15 years old after a near death experience and being really on the other side, coming back asking myself, asking God, what is it that I did do wrong? And the answer came to me through a spiritual mentor that I had bad feng shui. And literally the place where I slept, I really felt the heaviness of that space. I felt I was suffocating in that room. And so I changed to another room, painted it in a different color, did hang other images around me, and literally my life start turning around because what is around you is subconsciously affecting yourself, your mind, your heart, the actions you're taking. And I start going on that journey from that moment on. And once I understood what an impact it had and I started studying with the grand Masters in the Asian tradition, I really understood that this is something I wanted to share with the world because it is so impactful and so easy to change things around us. And because of that, your life will change also.
Amanda Testa (05:12):
That's fascinating. So I'm curious for you too, you mentioned, I know you've been doing this for decades and you have such experience, you're a master in this. I'm curious to know when you think about some of the biggest impacts you see that this has on people, particularly a lot of the people that are listening to my podcast are women that are looking to feel better in their skin and have more energy in general. And I love how you just said what happens around you is affected inside. But I was curious if you maybe could just share maybe a story of some kind of that impact that it has on people if you wouldn't mind.
Marie Diamond (05:46):
Yeah, of course. So immediately a story comes to mind of a woman in New York and she was like, Marie, I feel stuck. I feel like people are not respecting me. I feel really down on my luck. And I was like, that's interesting. So I came to visit her and as I walked into her space, there was a image, a modern painting, but with words in it. And one of the words that was on it, it was the first thing she saw when she walked in was in big letters, the word victim. And I was like, oh my God. I said, do you feel like you're a victim? She said, oh yeah, I am a victim from my husband, from this. And I was like, well, it's interesting you've been telling that to yourself and perhaps because of that you're attracted buying a painting that has that word in it or that word was there and you start thinking that way.
And she's like, oh my God, I never thought about that. And so this is a story that I feel, but I've seen also people feeling so stuck in their life and I think about this one woman, and actually she was from Denver, Colorado, and she called me and she's like, Marie, I am so stuck, I don't know what to do in my future anymore. And I said, can I just see your home? And everywhere in her home was so much clutter and she had collected so much things over the years and she did not know how to get rid of it because it's not so easy always to organize yourself. And I said, let's go through it together. And so we went through it. I helped her to clear the energy in herself to forgive herself, first of all to hold on to all so much stuff because she had a lot of judgment about it.
And so before we knew it, all this energy opened up for her and she was like, Marie, I've been trying to get money from an insurance claim that never has been paid out. And as she was opening up her space and reorganizing things, she started seeing that people started coming back to her home. Her family came to visit her. There was space now for her family, the insurance claim got paid out. And it was like, yeah, but now there's space for new things. And she used it to paint her house and to make everything more beautiful. And she also got a new partner. So it sometimes we are holding onto so much and one of the first step is also to open the space. And to open the space is also to let go of things that are broken and go of things that we do not longer use anymore.
Things that we feel we're holding on to, I dunno, for whatever reason, but that actually stops the chi, stops the flow of energy. And I share always in the book Feng Shui your life, it's like everything around you is affecting your subconscious mind. So every color, every item, every clutter that is around you is affecting you. And we don't understand it, but we are getting more stuck because of what is around us because it's the easiest to change literally is pick something up and turn it away or change. I literally, I moved into a new home, I painted a wall in the beauty of my favorite color. So when I look at it, I feel always joyful. So putting things around me through a certain system that will actually help you to get to become aware of everything is affecting me. And once you understand that, you can start letting go of things.
Amanda Testa (09:33):
That makes a lot of sense because it is hard to declutter for a lot of people. That is one of the hardest parts.
Marie Diamond (09:39):
It is. And we have in a functional life book of a specific system that I have used for hundreds of thousands of people. And that is proven. I mean people say it works, it helps them to get to the next level of decluttering. And I would say first of all, try to get somebody to help you with that. And that asks you the question, do you need to use this in the next year? It's not about does that gives me joy because a lot of things gives you joy, but just practical will I still need to use that in the next year? And if one person can be with you and ask you that question because we find something or take you, oh my God, I got it from my aunt. Oh, this is a memory connect with dad. But the question is sometimes we want to keep some of the memories, but not everything you need to a little bit challenged by somebody that says, really, is this something you can use for the next year?
So it's like you ask yourself certain questions and that's very helpful. And you also understand that in the system that I'm talking about in Feng shui is very personal. And so we have seen that based on your birthday and your birth gender, you actually have an energetic profile and that energetic profile connects in with the wind directions. So compass directions. So everyone has what we call a personal success, health, relationship and wisdom direction. And once you know these directions, that's the first corners of a space that you will declutter because it's possible you can't declutter everything but your success direction where you will attract success in your career and money you'll always want to declutter first your health. If you have a challenge with your health, if you have problems with your relationships, you'll first focus on your relationship corner. And this is very personal and people, of course the book Feng Shui Your Life explains all this. But you also can download my free app, Marie Diamond. You just put in Marie Diamond on any Apple store and you will actually need to put in your birthday and it will calculate a number. And once you have that number calculated, you will get a compass. And that compass will indicate the four directions that are important for you. And I know you have downloaded that too, Amanda,
Amanda Testa (12:08):
I was really fascinated because it makes a lot of sense because I have a basic understanding of Feng Shui, but not as really appreciate your unique method because it makes it a lot easier to just with the compass, you don't have any questions, it's just very simple. You can just hold it and it will show you. And I think that's very helpful for people. And I also appreciated just all the resources that are there on the app as well as in the book. I would love if you would share a little bit more about what makes your method unique.
Marie Diamond (12:38):
Yes. So there is in America a system called the bagua system that is more a general system based on the front door. And when I was trained as I'm a classical Feng Shui Master, so I'm really trained in the ancient traditions that are thousands of years old and about a thousand or 500 years ago, they start understanding that the qi comes from the wind and the compass direction. It shows the wind energy and that is very personal. So based on that is something called the Compass School. And I use that as a method to help understand people that certain wind, certain wind directions will actually affect you more than others. So it's a very personal system. What I love about it, because it's not general, you can always say, well this area is general for everybody, but is it for you because you have a very personal energetic profile.
And so I found a way to make that accessible in an app and I wanted to make sure that the access was free for people so that they could really use the app and all the time find out in the place where they sleep, where they work, where they live, or any place that they're spending a couple of hours in to at least find out where's their success direction. And so what you do then is that in that success direction for you, it really affects you the most, more than the general system. And so whatever is there is affecting you. And we've seen that within three seconds, it goes so fast that we can see if there is clutter or the wrong images in your success direction. We've seen that the brainwaves are changing. And so I put that whole system together and we did testing with the brainwaves.
And so when people are in beta brainwave, they are much more focused on the past, they're much more in fear. So when your success direction has the wrong images and has clutter, you go faster into fear, into worries about the future, about money, about your career. When people then put the right images up there and they declutter that area, that success direction, in that case, their energy changes within a few seconds. It goes very quickly. More and more alpha brain waves are occurring in your brain. And even if you don't even look at it, it's just being present in that room because it's really a quantum physics field. And so when people then are there, they feel like more creative, they feel more uplifted, they feel more inspired, more solution driven. And so it's like your energy shifts really and your brain shifts. Your mindset is there's a lot of people do wonderful things intuitively, right?
Oh, I put something intuitively, yes, it's possible that you write on and you put the right thing, but there is a proven energy system based on your birthday that you have certain colors that work for you. You have certain, I would say images that work better for you. Today I tuned into Amanda and I felt I needed to put myself in a gold look right now. I did not know and you immediately commented on my outfit, but you're number six and one of the colors for the number six is gold. And so everything metal, so I always tune in to what does that person needs, but also gold is definitely one of my colors. So I will use some of the colors to come across. And that is all really explained in the book and it makes such a difference because it's so personalized and it works for you all the time the same way. So from the moment of birth till the moment you pass on it is the same directions, it is the same colors, and you can even use that for your website or your branding or anything you're doing. It's all aligned with your energy.
Amanda Testa (16:57):
I love that. It's so interesting because I don't know if you notice behind me, but I have these kind of metal panels which I did not realize were connected and I'll have to double check where they are in my directions. But I noticed such a difference in the energy in my office and my business. I reorganized my office, I don't know, maybe 18 months ago and it felt so much better and I put these up, which I really love. So I think that's interesting. Yeah. So I'm curious too, I know you've seen so many thousands and thousands of homes. I would ask curious maybe what are a couple of the things that a lot of people do that they should not be doing? What should most people avoid? What are the things that we should not be doing?
Marie Diamond (17:39):
Yeah. Well the first thing I always share is especially for your romantic luck and for your health is in your bedroom, try to avoid having mirrors because our mirror, the facade of a television can be a mirror too. So when you have mirrors, you're actually doubling the energy and when you're asleep, you're doubling your sleeping energy. But it also doubles your stress that you come in with. And there have been tests seen in China that when you have mirrors, you are easier doubling your weight, easier doubling your inflammation, your blood pressure, the white blood cells. So it really affects your health. But also if you are single and you'll have mirrors, you're doubling your solitude. And if you're with two people in the bed, you're doubling the partnership. So it means that there's not such a confidence and trust in the relationship. So first of all, always cover anything to do with mirrors in the bedroom.
You can put the screen in front of it or you can hang something like a curtain or you remove them. So that's the first thing I would like you to do. The second thing is a no-no is remove anything that is dead looking. So a plants that are dead looking pottpouri, but some people have dead skin, cow skin as a carpet or anything that is broken. So anything that is not vibrant needs to be replaced. That doesn't mean you cannot have fake plants, but for example, I have a fake plant behind me, but it looks so real that it's okay because I travel so much. I'm not always so good at watering my plants, but it cannot be a dea orchid, for example. So because then you're creating stalling vibration and when everything is stalling around you, you can literally not get to the next level.
And then also I always suggest people look through your house, walk through your house, you would be the universe, you would be God. And look through this eyes of awareness and see I have pictures still up from my children when they were five, but now they're 25. How do I treat my children as their five year olds? Or do they feel like they're listened? They can be listened to as adults, perhaps you have images of a lot of single women or men around you and you really want to be focused on the romance, then you need to change your images around you. So you really have to look around and thinking, is this what I desire? Is this the kind of energy I want in my life? So because I really say your home is a three-dimensional vision board and everything around you is affecting you. So are these images reflecting of what you want in your life? So look through your home with a little bit more, I would say critical, but little bit more aware eyes and to see, yes, I need to update my life, I need to change the energy.
Amanda Testa (20:55):
I'm curious. This was a really important tip that you mentioned about for your relationships. And I'm curious too because a lot of my listeners are oftentimes need to get the spark back in their relationship or to feel their desire reit. And so I'm curious when it comes to the bedroom, if you have any tips around that, anything else you can do in the bedroom to spice things up?
Marie Diamond (21:14):
Of course. So first of all, make sure that you're aware of what hangs above your headboard. So what hangs above your headboard will inspire you and your partner. So if that's an image of water, remove it. We do not want any water. Images in the bedroom creates a lot of emotional arguments. So release that, put something above your headboard that is romantic, have a beautiful heart above my bedroom, above my headboard. Or it could be an image of you and your partner. You don't have a partner hangs something that is about love and hearts and a couple, but just make sure it's not connected with water. The second thing I would suggest is add some warmer colors to your bedroom and especially earth colors like pinks and oranges, yellows try to avoid too many reds. I know people think reds is passion, but you cannot have, for example, a red bedroom because that's too much fire and you're always on alert energetically.
You can add a few red symbols like candles or little pillow, that is fine, but not painting a tin red. Yeah. Also, like I said, water is not good. So even if you have a lot of blue around you, like blue curtains, blue carpets or blue covers, remove that because when there's too much water, there's no passion. So people get too emotional, they get a little bit on the depressed side, so warm up the space with earth tones and even metal tones like golds are very good to put in there. Now also remove the clutter, put some images around you. Even on the nightstand, people sometimes are single and they only have one pillow and one nightstand. Now invite already a new person to come in by putting a nightstand on the other side. Make symmetry with two lamps. So to pillows, make sure there is space enough for both partners in the closet.
If it's a walk-in closet or even in your bathroom, make sure there's enough space for the perfumes and toothpaste and whatever for both partners because then you will feel more equal connected with each other. Last step is when you wake up and the first thing you see, make sure it's not a television, so make sure it's a beautiful image of both of you or something romantic. So adding that towards and redirecting, we have a whole chapter on relationship and of course checking out your personal relationship direction based on your birthday. For my example, mine is west and I just moved into a new house and in the west was a mirror. Of course the first thing we took out was a mirror. And instead I put a beautiful table with a picture of my husband and me and the first thing is always ask is this good Feng shui is bedroom because we're already 33 years together. And I said, Feng shui really works because we're not the easiest combination as characters, but the love is always there because we always make sure our bedroom is a love sanctuary.
Amanda Testa (24:34):
I love that word, love sanctuary. And I also, I love this too because I do not recommend people have electronics in their bedroom. It's not good for your relationship, I don't think personally. So I try to advise people, if you can avoid having electronics in your bedroom, great, right?
Marie Diamond (24:49):
Yeah, it is really important is what you focus on. So what you focus on will grow as I was one of the master teachers in the movie The Secret. So for us it's really important that people become aware. It's not just what you consciously focus on, but also what your subconscious is connecting with. And if you have your tablet and your computer and your phone too close to you, before you know it, you're grabbing it and you're scrolling and you're looking at things instead of a book of inspiration or a journal or just having time to talk to each other before you go to bed to cuddle, make time for each other. If you can't do that in the bedroom, where will you do it? Sometimes life is busy.
Amanda Testa (25:36):
That is so true. And congratulations on 33 years. That's amazing. Thank you.
Marie Diamond (25:39):
Amanda Testa (25:41):
Yeah. So I'm curious too, because you mentioned earlier about your diamond number or your personal number. I'm curious if you could share a little bit more about that and what that really means, how people can utilize that through your teachings.
Marie Diamond (25:57):
So it's really interesting when we look at the energy number. So what it first gives, it gives you an archetype. This is kind of, for example, I'm a connector, so I love connecting people, I love networking. So it's a way of how your soul purpose is actually connecting in with your vibration. And so it indicates part of your soul purpose. Of course it's possible to say I don't feel like I'm the creator, but there's more to that word than just the word creator. And that's kind of something we explain deeper of course in my teachings. But it also first of all gives you the four best directions that are important for you that you can then start activating around you, but you can go even deeper into it. And a second book that I would then suggest from me is called the Energy Number book.
So when you go to Amazon and get FengShui Your Life and you want to do a little more information about energy number, you can go and get the Energy Number Book. And there it's actually even what kind of professions, professional activities or passions that you attract, for example, what kind of things for your health that you need. Also, what kind of relationship techniques are working good for you. By knowing this, my energy number of my husband, I know what he really likes and he knows what I like. And so we found a new love communication language because of it also what inspires you and what helps you to have more mental wellbeing. So that's all connect with your energy number. Plus there are also certain colors and you will see around when you go to the compass that you will receive, you will see that there are certain colors around the compass and these colors will really affect you.
So you will put them around you, you can put them on you as in your garter rope. And so it's very interesting, it's a whole system of not just implementing in your house, but also using it for your personal and to understand yourself better knowing your energy number. And so it's a beautiful way to find who you are. And I remember the one man and he was telling me, most time people would come to me and say, oh, Marie, I know you're from The Secret, and this man comes to me and is like, oh, I'm a number two, I'm a teacher. And I said, oh, interesting. And he's like, I always wanted to study and I always wanted to teach and bring my wisdom to others, but I work in a hotel and it just gave me the courage and I put things out in my success direction. And now I just started to study to be a school teacher. And I was like, wow. It's like it brings out, as you're activating things around you, it brings out your soul purpose even stronger. And that is what I love about the system.
Amanda Testa (29:05):
I think that's amazing because a way of also focusing your thoughts and your minds on what you want, but using the energy to help bring that in. And I'm curious if you could share a little bit more about how you can use feng shui to call in your desires.
Marie Diamond (29:21):
Yeah. So one of the first things we always do is ask yourself what are the goals of course that you have? And in Feng Fhui Your Life, we talk about the four pillars. So there's like in order to build a house, a house of happiness, we need four pillars. Or your house falls over. So it is about success and money, it is also about your health and relationship and your wisdom and wisdom. For us, it's about your connection with God. And because feng shui is not a religion, it supports any religion or spiritual practices that you have. So when we activate these four pillars, what happens? You start feeling a more harmonious and happy life because you feel more grounded. You feel like your goals are manifesting easier. And so a lot of people that wants to do manifestation, they write their goals and then they perhaps forget about it or they create a vision board or they try to pray or do affirmations for it.
Now what I've learned from my Grand Masters is that there are three aspects to manifestation. And so the first aspect is what you call your heavenly aspect of manifestation, of the law of attraction. And that is when you are born, you come in with some talents, you come in perhaps with a gift for mathematics or a gift to play piano. There is some basic manifestation already at place. You have chosen your parents or country where you live in. Now can you change that? You can change some of these things through decisions that you're making, but there's some basic vibration that you have. And most people think that destiny or that karma is like everything. No, it's not true. We have the power to change that around. And the second part of that manifestation energy that we have is what you call the human luck. And the human luck is what you as a human being have as the possibility to change your mindset, to change your behavior, and to change your actions.
So that is the self-help, the self-development world. The spiritual world we are actually focusing on is to every day to have the discipline to be grateful, the discipline to think positive. But let's be honest, it is not easy because life happens to you and it's not always to keep that up. And so the last part, that missing link is your environment and your environment can be also a part of your manifestation. So it's possible that you don't have the discipline to always think positive about your money or think positive about relationships. But by placing things in your four pillars, in your four directions, that reminds you about what your focus is, what your vision is, what your goals are, that will actually subconsciously give you all the time a storyline. And so as you walking into that space, you subconscious will pick up the story that you're creating around you and it'll start affecting your mindset.
It'll start affecting your behavior and the actions you take because everything around you is aligned with your goals, even if you forgot about them. So many times I have goals written down and then I put things in my directions and then look back at it. I'm like, oh yes, that was one of my goals. But anyhow, they are manifesting already and I've seen them manifesting and I'm like, oh, this has happened. And I didn't even think about it. I'll give you an example. So when in 2001 I came for the first time to live in America, I put a vision board up and on my vision board that I put in my success direction by the way, I put, I'm going to be in a movie seen by millions of people that will transform the world. And I just put it literally on the little yellow post-it note, I put it on there.
And so it was there. And I put also a symbol of it out because it's good not just to put words but symbols. So for a movie, what is the symbol that's an Oscar. So I put an Oscar on it. And very interesting, within a few weeks I had my first Oscar winning client and I didn't even think of having an Oscar, but the universe was sending that vibration out because it's in the right portal to the universe that is linked with your vibration. And so meanwhile, I have more than 20 Oscar winning clients. And then one day I was like, well, I ended up in a movie called The Secret that has reached more than 500 a million people by the way. And so it's like, oh. And did I think on that everyday consciously? No, I didn't. But my home was holding the space for it in a conscious way and my subconscious was receiving and opening up doors in the energetic field.
And I remember one day I was telling myself, I only get Oscar winning clients that have one Oscar. So I was like, what if there are more people that I can reach? So I got myself two extra fake Oscars, and within 10 days I was actually Feng Shuing the home of Steven Spielberg that has one more than three Oscars and I have several three Oscar winning clients now. And so it's really interesting. It's like you give yourself permission to change, but it's possible your home is telling a different story then what you have in your mind. And so if your home is aligning the story with the goals that you have in mind, then your home will keep working on it on a subconscious level. Each time you come into that space, it gives vibrations and your mindset will start changing and you start attracting things that you're like, oh, of course it was, was literally there. And I am so surprised, but I put it out there. So we say that Feng Shui is 33% of the results of manifestation. So if you haven't dabbed into that and you feel like you're stuck in your manifestation, start using Feng Shui Your Life because what it does, it opens the portals. And I've seen this over and over again with more than 1 million online students that people have amazing results with just changing their environment.
Amanda Testa (36:00):
I'm curious too, and I know you talk about this in the book, but for those listening where they're wanting to make these changes, what would you say would be the number one place to start? Which room in your house or where is the most, would be the most important place to start first do you think?
Marie Diamond (36:14):
Well, I would say people that have a workspace and they have an office or a space that they work, I would start there because it affects their business, it affects their money flow more, and it's always a good thing they feel. They start attracting different clients, they feel that there's more possibilities and opportunities coming through their way. So that's one thing I would change. And in that space I would try and make sure you are in a power position. So what is a power position for women? I call it the Queen position is that you are sitting on your desk or when you are working on your computer, making sure you see the door. That alone changes your whole perspective on life. If you are sitting with your back to the door and you're like with your desk against the wall or against the window and the door is behind you, you do not attract all the things that you desire because literally everything is happening behind you.
So that little thing can totally shift your life. I've seen people getting raises, getting promotions, getting new jobs, new clients just by turning their desk around. And yesterday somebody said, I just did that and I had such a hard time getting new clients. Within a half hour I had 12 new clients calling me just because you are seeing the flow of energy coming in, and this is the door through the hallway, it's not the door of the bathroom or it is really people coming in, even if you work online, I work online right now with you, Amanda and everybody listening, but literally I can see who comes in. I am in power position. So that's the first thing I would always work on. And if you don't have a workspace, then focus on your bedroom and make sure your bedroom is more beautiful, more harmonious. So these are the two areas I would first focus on.
Amanda Testa (38:12):
Yeah, I love, and I appreciate the tip you shared earlier about the mirrors because I think that's something that oftentimes people hear is like, oh, a mirror will make your space look bigger or, so it's interesting to note what you don't really want that in your bedroom,
Marie Diamond (38:25):
Not in your bedroom. When you want mirrors, you can use them definitely in a living room, in a dining room, in hallways, you can definitely do that. But in a bedroom you really try to avoid that. And I've always seen people sleep so much better. They're much more rested in the morning, they're much more energized because the mirror is always taking away some of your vitality. So I know this is typically, and especially in America, it's like everywhere I come there are mirrors. And I was just recently with somebody and he had mirrors on one side and mirrors on the other side. So his bed was multiplied like hundreds of times, literally. And I said, how's your relationship doing? And he is like, oh my god, nonexisting. And I was like, well, you only can make love with yourself here hundreds of times. So it's like, oh, okay, I'll cover them. And then interesting enough, an old friend to call, an old girlfriend called back and they're dating again. And it was really interesting how this thing's very quickly shift because you already have aligned yourself with your goals and your home can inspire you to get to these goals or can block you getting to these goals. So it's up to you to make that decision to start working on it. Well,
Amanda Testa (39:46):
I have one last question too. I'm curious because oftentimes when someone's wanting to make change, how can you get the other people in your home on board, like your family, your partner, your kids, what would you share as some tips to get your family on board?
Marie Diamond (40:02):
So one of the things is you start first yourself. That's the whole point. So you activate your direction, and so there can be in your bedroom, can be in your workspace, in a place where you feel you have some control, and then they start seeing the changes that are happening. And one of the good things with the app is everybody would love to know their number. And on the app you can actually have and check out the numbers for somebody else. But in order for them to start working, they need to download the app themselves because it creates a separate profile. But everybody wants to know, oh, I'm number four or a number two, what does that mean? So well, this is your success reaction. I have seen people, women that said, oh, my husband will never go for that, but they want to know their number.
Like, oh, that's my success. Oh wow, what is going on there? A dead plant? Of course, my success, well, let's remove it. Let's play with it. So invite your family to play with you, right? Don't tell them you have to change this because according to Marie Diamond, this is wrong. No, don't go into that. I play with that just if my children who are grownups, right? They have the app and they're like, my daughter's in UCLA, so she's like, mom, I looked at my dorm room. Oh, this is going on and this is going on. And she replaces things because it becomes a way of living. And because it's so fun to app that people are like, oh, I can do that. You don't have to really get into learning all the intrinsics of feng shui. What can take years. I have created a system that is easy, that is practical, that is fun to do, and the Feng shui Your life book is really a beginner's guide, but I'm telling you, this beginner's guide, my celebrities paid thousands of dollars for this beginner's guide when I come to their place and they see the shift happening.
And now I have just tried to make it so accessible for each person because I believe that mainstream America, mainstream the world needs that information. And even if it's known in the Asian culture, I'm a big believer that all of us need to have this information.
Amanda Testa (42:22):
It's been such a delight to talk to you. Thank you so much. I'm curious too, before we go, if there's any, maybe if there was a question that I did not ask that you wished I would've asked or anything else that you really want to share, and then you can share where everyone can find your book. But I would love to know if there was maybe a question that I didn't ask or anything else you want to share.
Marie Diamond (42:41):
Well, I would say that most people are a little bit afraid of change. And so I would say it takes a little bit of courage to change yourself, but changing your environment is something that is quite easier. I mean, it's just changing your desk, hanging a different image, decluttering a little bit. So it's not like you have to have tons of courage to change yourself, right? It's like acupuncture, literally the acupuncture of your home by placing certain things, there's new flow, you feel like this new energy coming in and do that with your family, do that with your friends and you will see it's kind of becoming an easy, wonderful energy that starts unfolding. So it's not that you need courage for it, it's just you need to take an action step and you can start with buying the book in the good bookstores or on Amazon, download your app and start playing with it.
Amanda Testa (43:46):
That's beautiful. Thank you so much again for being here and for sharing all this wisdom. Thank you. I'm so excited to do more rearranging. As I was telling you before we started recording, I had an opportunity to read the book and download the app, and I'm so excited to shift some things around. So thank you.
Marie Diamond (44:01):
